Pack Your Bags

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Ploy @ 10:51 pm

I wish I could do this with pictures, but I am too lazy to gather up the things. Maybe next time.

Anyways, I wish I could jump on a plane right now and fly off to somewhere. Wait, not even a plane. Going to Villa Maroc (Pranburi-Hua Hin, in Thailand) would suffice.

This is a list of what I would pack:

1) A few t-shirts from the Gap. I’m so happy the Gap finally has a store in Bangkok. I’ve been going crazy over their oversized ‘boyfriend’ tees. They are amazing. I currently have two (black and blue) but I plan to buy more (orange, purple, and green!)

2) Chanel’s Coromandel nailpolish. It’s the best red nailpolish (for my skintone) ever. Seriously.

3) My worn-in pair of Havaianas. I wish I could wear them to work, too.

4) Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses.

5) A bathing suit. Which reminds me, it’s about time I buy a new one.

6) Kiehl’s sunscreen. It’s non-sticky and absorbs easily.

7) Reading material: one or two airport thrillers, travelogues, and Vogue Paris.

8 ) A camera. Perhaps by the time I go I’d have bought a Canon G11!!!

That’s about it :]

Daybreakers, or: Spontaneous Combustion Never Sounded So Good

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Ploy @ 11:07 pm

Ten reasons why I liked Daybreakers, or, at the very east, do not regret the 150 baht I spent on it.

1) It has Ethan Hawke

2) Moreover, it has WILLEM DAFOE

3) Who, in one scene, grins and says, “F*ck it, I love a good barbeque.”

4) It goes on to show that, as long as a vampire wears sunglasses and avoid direct contact with sunlight, daytime is actually bearable. I am no vampire, however, so I can not vouch for the validity of this act.

5) The humans survivors fight heavily-armed vampire soldiers with…crossbows. Some things can be so ridiculous it’s funny.

6) Ethan Hawke chain smokes throughout the movie, but, being undead his lungs probably do not function. How does he inhale the smoke? I do not know.

7) Did I mention the movie is so ridiculous it’s funny?

8 ) But in it’s defense, the climax of the story gave a new spin to the vampire mythos

9) Plus, there were no squealing teenage girls in the theater, which might have been caused by the blessed fact that…

10) THESE VAMPIRES DON’T SPARKLE
